ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams refuse to be counted out.

They built such a huge cushion against the heavily favored Colts they needed no late-game production to end a three-game losing streak.

The Rams (4-6) enter their bye week on a very high note, a 38-8 romp on the road fueled by rookie Tavon Austin's long-awaited bust-out performance, and big plays in all phases. It was the franchise's largest margin of victory since a 36-0 rout of the Falcons on Oct. 13, 2003 - also the Rams' last winning season.

They'll practice Wednesday and Thursday before players get a four-day weekend.

Tight end Lance Kendricks (broken finger) will work out wearing a cast, and coach Jeff Fisher said safety T.J. McDonald (broken leg) and guard Harvey Dahl (knee) are getting closer to returning.
